I always figured actually turning 30 would be an AMAZING THING, but I had no idea it would happen like this.

The night before my birthday, I was tricked in to going to my friend Brandon's house to pick up a friend on the way to a birthday dinner. When I got there, there was a surprise party set up of epic proportions. Just about all my friends, a gigantic bounce castle, a custom-made home brew bottled and labeled with my namesake, a taco truck, a 30 AMAZING THINGS cake, a stencil canvas that all my friends painted on, a keg of my favorite beer, and a slow-motion camera area.

These is the best moments from the slow-motion camera footage.

30 AMAZING THINGS is also a podcast wherein me and friends discuss THINGS I've done, and THINGS I am planning. You can listen along at itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-30-amazing-things-podcast/

These were shot with a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition, set in 720p 120fps mode.
